Thread: Thunderbolt chain running hotter
05-15-2012, 12:09 PM #1Thunderbolt chain running hotter
Chaining a 23" Cinema Display from a MBP (running latest Lion OS) via a Lacie 2big Thunderbolt drive (in a RAID configuration) I'm noticing that the MBP runs hotter than when I just hook up the display straight to the laptop without the Lacie in the chain.
My question to the board: Does this sound good?
Right now I've got a mini-fan powered by USB cooling the port area of the MBP and that is a solution.
Meanwhile Lacie techs are telling me this temp rise is to be expected with the 2big in the chain. Can I believe them?
BTW recording audio to the 2big is a dream, whew, lightning plus! T/bolt rocks!!! And Mac got there first. Of course...

You're extending the PCIe bus, I'd expect added heat load.mike
